    Edema, rapid weight gain, neuropathy, tinnitus, shortness of breath so severe it was difficult to exert myself. I also over heated easily. Minor to moderate exertion left me sweating profusely from upper body. Dr took me off 5 days ago and I feel horrible. Feels like Iâ??m having a heart attack.

    This drug is dangerous and whomever prescribes it should be made to take it. Within three days the pain in my knee was excruciating and I became depressed. Never ever take this drug. I'd rather have my blood pressure a little high than these horrific side effects...bad, bad, bad....

    At 5mg of norvasc, after 2 weeks my bp has slightly decreased BUT, now have shortness of breath, swelling in chest, any exertion causes feeling of dizziness and like I am going to pass out, anxiety, muscle pain, shallow breathing like I can't get enough air. This is one HORRIBLE DRUG.

    Didn't and couldn't stay on this medication long enough to judge it's effectiveness. Not only water retention in feet and ankles but heels became so sensitive that sleep was virtually impossible.
